Hello. My name is***** we are unable to prescribe medications for animals as we cannot physically examine them to make sure it is the proper medication. I understand that this can be frustrating. Despite the coughing, is Poochie otherwise breathing normally?

eating well and up and about
Expert:  Melanie Goble replied 6 months ago.

That is good. If she would worsen, then I would recommend taking her to an emergency clinic if you can't get into your regular veterinary clinic this weekend. If at any point, you are concerned and think that she may need medication, then taking her in is never the wrong answer.
